City Centre
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

We had a great 4 night stay here. The location is great, and the hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. Many workers speak English, and if I wasn’t clear, they would quickly grab somebody to help. The rates are reasonable, and internet worked great. We didn’t eat at the

In one way only 3 stars are not fair as rooms are fine adequate size, clean and staff friendly. Hotel is situated in almost perfect location, close to river, city, restaurants.... My beef is mostly that they charge for using the Gym, over 3000 yen per day, the gym is not large

All staffs (even room creaming ladies) are very friendly. スタッフの皆さんが親切で明るく丁寧な接客が好きです。 Rooms are always clean. 部屋はいつも本当に綺麗です。 I would enjoy more if the hotel worked harder for restaurants and caffes. レッスンとカフェにもう少し力を入れてもらえると、もっとホテル滞在が楽しめます。

Great hotel in a great location in Kyoto. Hotel is on the north side of the city right above the subway line. Lots of shopping and restaurant options. Staff is fantastic. My only feedback is that the hotel is a bit tired and in need of some refreshment, but a note in the room

If it is just one room with two queen beds, that might be difficult for you. If you stay at a-twin-beds-room with a small living room with sofa without separation between those two, you may stay with your two children. Kyoto Hotel Okura is one of the best hotels in central Kyoto.

Twin room just means two smaller beds instead of one large one. I would guess the rooms would be very similar in price but best to check with hotel directly.

How would one get to Kyoto convention center from your hotel? thanks
Hi, I had no reason to go to the convention center when I visited so I used Google maps to see public transit options. Put the convention center into Google . Click on the map that appears and use the Get Directions function to see transit to the Okura. That's the little bus icon. You get a tap card for public transit and load it with yen. Then you just tap and use for all buses/trains etc. You can use the same card in other Japanese cities like Tokyo. You could also just take a taxi. They are very reliable and very honest. It is about a 20min drive.

"Corner room, if possible"
"Higher floors give a better view; front rooms have view across the city"
"Rooms facing City Hall are noisy"
"rooms with view of the river would be nice"
US$156 - US$663 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
